Potential offerings

The University of Idaho in Boise would like to offer more courses to our community.  Here are just a few topics we could potentially offer as one-day short courses:

  • Principles and Practices of River Restoration
    • This course recognizes both the art and the science of the practice, presents a realistic approach to
      its problems, and critically analyzes the work of others. Students will review both the grey and the
      referred literature, learn from the experience of others, and share their knowledge and scientific
      intuition with the community of us who seek to make the river environment whole. Emphasis will
      be on the literature, our experimental evaluation of materials and methods - at the Center for
  • State-of-the-Science and Applications of Bioengineering
    • This course will review the present state of the science to help students apply practices that
      integrate biological, ecological, and engineering principles and challenge them to imagine, design,
      and build original solutions not yet identified in the literature.
      Topics include: (1) identification of riparian species and their contributions to the functions and
      services of the floodplain; (2) means, method, and techniques of bioengineering; (3) use of wildlife
      to perform bioengineering tasks; and (4) successes and failures of constructed, bioengineered
      features placed on the landscape (e.g. log check dams, engineered accumulations of large woody
  • Ethics and Responsibilities of Engineering and Natural Resource Professionals
    • This course will examine: (1) the meanings of truth practiced by various professional communities,
      (2) the measures of scientific certainty, (3) the legal standards of each of our professions, and (4)
      the moral fitness of our practices. Students will review the code of ethics, rules, and
      responsibilities for both engineering and natural resource professions, and discuss our real world
      experiences and dilemmas.
  • Clean Water Act §402 and §404, its Practice and Administration
    • This course will examine the implementing rules and regulations of §402 and §404, their
      interpretations by the US Environmental Protection Agency and US Army Corps of Engineers, and
      published guidelines. Work products such as CWA §402 Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans
      and CWA §404 Joint Applications for Permits in the State of Idaho will be reviewed and discussed.

If you have an interest in any of the above topics or have ideas on what you'd like to see, please contact us at denisee@uidaho.edu.

Thank you.
